Latest of Mark Kermode's twice weekly video blogs:-
I've been watching these for some time and for the most part find them interesting and entertaining.

Mark Kermode's a great bloke, but he notoriously never watches TV!!
Which brings me back to the point I always make about how cinematic Ramsey's novels are and how baffling it is that so few adaptations have been made. I actually think 'The Long Lost' (his finest and most original novel to date, for me) would make an absolutely cracking multi-strand TV drama series along the lines of Jimmy McGovern's 'The Street'. If done with that kind of top quality script, cast & crew and presented as meaty in-your-face adult drama (touching serious social issues) with just the right amount of creepy supernatural shading it could revolutionise TV horror overnight. We can live and dream...
But Mark wouldn't have a clue what I was talking about lol.

I like Mark Kermode. He's very typically English in the way that once raw indie types critics were.
Now somebody will tell me he's actually Scottish by birth.

A thing I did about a Mark Kermode / Charles Shaar Murray-esque film critic for Comedybox many, many years ago...
If it's of any interest.

Here's a thing, also. (Relevance: things)
John C. O'Reilly, I salute you. Film stars don't DO things like this.
